What to prepare for your first visit


Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive (via email or in person) a packet with several documents to complete prior to your visit. Please ensure you have read and understand the document entitled How to Determine OT Benefits (also included in your packet) to understand your OT insurance coverage and whether or not prior authorization is required.
